Mark had heard stories about persecution in the past, but it didn't seem real. All he had ever known was peace, and in his youthful innocence he did not realize how quickly things could change.

In AD 284, Diocletian was crowned emperor of Rome. Almost two decades later, soon after Mark was ordained a presbyter, the emperor unleashed his fury on the church. It was a time of suffering and testing—the worst persecution Christianity had ever faced. Mark and his wife were caught right in the middle.

They had a choice. They could give up their faith and live. Maybe even prosper.

Or they could stand firm. And die...


This is Book One of the four-part Century in Crisis series. This series brings to life a tumultuous time in the history of Christianity. It was a time of deception, and the forces of evil tried every possible way to destroy the faith of true believers. Alternating between freedom and persecution, the Christian church struggled to remain faithful to the teachings of Christ.

We too live in deception times, and the tactics are still the same. What can we learn from the experiences of the early Christians? How can we remain faithful in our day?
